    I wonder how much these houses would be today if they were still standing. Expensive, me thinks! Does anyone know Brockton?
  • Audioshot 1y

    These houses were gone about three years after this photo. They were on Rosseter St, (half way between N Main and Montello St.).
  • Barbara 1y

    Audioshot: Thanks for the further information about the houses, which should help identify the locations of two additional photographs
    Children in the tenement district, Brockton, Mass.  (LOC) by The Library of Congress
    and
    [Children with adult in the tenement district, Brockton, Massachusetts]  (LOC) by The Library of Congress
    . Could you tell us, please, how you determined the location of the houses?
